Format: Paperback
With the publication five years ago of his bestselling first book, `God Is Near', Australian priest Michael Morwood demonstrated a rare awareness of the confusion about the contemporary Catholic Church experienced by many in our parish churches. While passionate about the need for change in the church, indeed radical transformation, he proved himself a sensitive guide for those struggling with the changes that have occurred since the Second Vatican Council.
After a period of study in the United States, but obviously still in touch with the concerns of those in the pews, Morwood is back with a new book unlikely to give much comfort to those traditionalists who considered `God Is Near' anathema but welcomed by the many who have benefited from his pastoral vision. (Indeed, the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne has recently banned `Tomorrow's Catholic' from schools and churches.)
`Tomorrow's Catholic' is a very readable presentation of a Catholic theology and spirituality that does not presume a worldview in which the Church is at the centre of our society and its authority unquestioned. Morwood is tackling the thorny issue of how to preserve the essence of the gospel and Catholic tradition without the `packaging' of the past. He explains the changing worldview in which we are now immersed, and shows how we can understand God, revelation and Jesus in such a context. He also makes insightful proposals for spirituality and the exercise of leadership in the Church.
Like its predecessor, `God Is Near', Morwood's book is suitable for personal or group use. It includes questions for reflection, suggestions for further reading, a bibliography and index. [Book of the Month Selection, John Garratt Catholic Book Club.]

Format: Paperback
I finished this book, flipped it over and started reading it again. Morwood's message spoke to me in a profound and exciting way: I've struggled to reconcile my call to Catholicism with church doctrines that appear irrelevant or affirmatively harmful; Morwood provides a framework for "re-imaging" God, Jesus and Church in a manner that resonates deeply for me. The church scandals and the relentless drumbeat of Apologist/conservative theology had me deeply depressed about the church and my role in it; this book has me feeling more hopeful and excited about my faith than I have in a long time.
I hope that no one is dissuaded from reading this book by the vehemence of some of the critical reviews posted here. Sadly, I think some people let ideology impede open-minded engagement with some wonderfully rich and important ideas. (And it's clear by some comments that certain reviewers haven't even read the book!)
Great stuff -- highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I was given this book by a friend who asked me, as a priest, to do a cursory read of the contents and share with him some of my thoughts and engage him with his. Lo and behold, even having studied philosophy, epistemology, anthrpology, cosmology and various traditional and contemporary theological thought formulations I discovered that this material would not be a cursory read. Beginning with the first chapter, I found myself stopping to re-establish my brain connection to the world of thought dealing with how the "world" is perceived by how it has changed just in the years since Vatical Council II to the present. There is a vast chasm between that time and now and it is confounding to try to grasp it, what it means and how God and the Christian faith is related to it. Revisiting the "Church in the Modern World", one has to revisit "what" is the "modern" world. Scientific discoveries, medical science advances, the changing of climate reflected most dramatically in NY City and NJ in recent days...and more...can be very disturbing to an inquiring mind who attempts to make sense of God not just as found in the truths of Thomistic Theology but in God's continuing revelation. As the world view expands, it seems to me, that our minds, our awarenesses of life and human interaction and the consequences of Incarnation have to expand likewise in order to prevent our study of God (theology) from becoming static and, therefore, unable to transform us in our current experience of the world as we now know it to be versus how Thomas Aquinas knew it to be. There are those, however, who I encounter who simply do not want to think, would remain comfortable saying they know a theology with which they are comfortable and have no need to entertain any of Michael's deeply challenging and thought-provoking ideas.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
It takes courage to write this kind of book. Much of this material can be heard in Theology classes, but only Michael Morwood took it upon himself to shout it from the mountain tops. Of course what he wrote was disturbing, because truth is disturbing; but truth will set you free.

Christ did the same kind of distubance to Judaism during his time, and that was why he was crucified. Since crucifixion is now out of practice, hence the author was crucified with poor reviews.

Take it from the reviews on the first few pages of the book. I got my copy from Elizabeth's in Fremantle and there are four pages of "Praise" from priests, religious, nuns, theologians, writers, parishioners; and in this forum, from yours truly.
